We shall remember them

Bloody the cost
Yet scarce we remember
The freedom their lives bought
The tyrant kept from the door
These happy shores must not forget
Those to whom the debt is owed
Not till the last word is written
The last promise made
Until our last breath too, is taken
We shall remember them

    Good that you took the tie to write this for them. Yesterday the date did catch my attention and I had a thought for the meaning of that date, but it never materialised into written form. Thank you for doing it – beautifully, and in a way that managed to be both impersonal, and yet intimate.
